          recommended series on Talmud. One contributer to the list said:
          "The only reason [I] cannot say that the Artscroll texts are
          ``head and shoulders'' above the rest is that the others do not
          come up to Artscroll's shoulders. The translation and
          commentary are so superior to others such as Soncino as to make
          it no comparison."]

          in-depth translation and commentary; It's like having your own
          private Talmud teacher. There are special sections on
          terminology, history, geography and biographical backgrounds.

          the Artscroll edition, meaning that it more expensive, as you
